#15 Wetsuit Changing Mat
Wetsuits aren't cheap so a little TLC goes a long way. When getting in and out a wetsuit, it’s easy to accelerate the inevitable process of wear and tear. Using a changing mat will protect the neoprene of a wetsuit from pavement, gravel, and other rough surfaces. As a bonus, once it's off just pull up the drawstrings and it's packed neatly away.
#14 Fin Wallet
A fin wallet is a perfect way to keep track of your fin sets. Fin wallets come with slots to hold various sets of fins and also can hold the items that everybody is always losing like fin keys, leash ties, and fin screws. A good tool to stay organized and prepared at home or on a surf trip.

We’ve been using them for years and they definitely make a big difference!
